Show Me a Smile Photography | About

I fell in love with photography when I received my first camera, a Pentax K1000, at the age of twelve. Film. That seems like a lifetime ago! I had so much fun developing my own film in the dark room of my high school. Much has changed since then, and my passion for capturing beautiful moments has only become stronger. Being a mother of four has shown me the importance of freezing time, as they grow up so fast! Families are my specialty: maternity, your birth story, newborn, baby's first year, child and family portraits, and senior sessions. I love every stage. I also have eight years of experience as a Neonatal ICU Nurse, which makes me extremely comfortable in the delivery room and working with newborns. Whether you enjoy lifestyle photography or gravitate more toward traditional portraiture, I am here to walk with you through the process. So pull up a chair. Stay awhile. Wander through the galleries, and please contact me to ask any questions that may arise.

I would love the opportunity to capture memories for your family that last a lifetime.
